NEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – The Philippines and the United States — both are having their presidential elections this year in May and November, respectively.

While polls and social media speculation have greatly contributed to forecasting who will be elected president and vice president of either country, psychics are weighing in as well on the contests.

Sylvia Browne of the U.S. and Madam Auring of the Philippines are popular psychics in their respective countries.  Lo and behold, both have similar scenarios in predicting which among the candidates will emerge victorious.

Browne and Auring have agreed on two possible scenarios, but neither would confirm which scenario would eventually materialize.

Here are their predictions:

Scenario 1: The Philippines and the U.S. will elect women for both their president and vice president.  For the U.S., that would be Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren; for the Philippines, it would be Grace Poe and Leni Robredo.

Scenario 2: The Philippines will elect an autocrat for president, as will the U.S. — Donald Trump and Rodrigo Duterte.  As for the vice presidents, it will be sons of former presidents — Jeb Bush and Bongbong Marcos.

Unlike in the U.S., Philippine election laws allow voters to choose a president who is a candidate of one party and a vice president who is from another party, and this is reflected in both psychics’ predictions.

LONDON, United Kingdom (The Adobo Chronicles, Berlin Bureau) – As she celebrated her 90th birthday, Queen Elizabeth had a message to Great Britain’s LGBT community: don’t travel to the U.S.A.

The gay-friendly queen mother was reportedly pissed at the growing anti-LGBT sentiment in America, particularly in two states which recently passed discriminatory legislation against those who pledge allegiance to the rainbow flag.

But it was not only the Royal Palace that cautioned lesbian, gay, bisexual and transagender citizens about travel to America.  The British Foreign Office also issued — for the first time — a travel advisory specifically addressed to the LGBT community. It warned travelers to be aware of controversial new laws in North Carolina and Mississippi before visiting the United States.

imageAlthough the advisory was directed at North Carolina and Mississippi, organizers of Pride celebrations across the U.S. — from  San Francisco to New York — are weary that there will be less attendance in their respective celeberations this June.

Moral of the story: you can piss off the Prime Minister, but you’d better not piss off the Queen!

Donald Trump’s Response To Mayor Rod Duterte: ‘As President, I Will Deport All Filipinos’

imageMIAMI, Florida (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – Philippine presidential candidate Rodrigo Duterte threatened to sever ties with the United States once he is elected on May 9 this year, and U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump is thanking him for it.

Duterte made the threat after U.S. Ambassador to the Philippines Philip Goldberg criticized the mayor for comments in a viral video in which he said he should have been first in line in the serial rape of murdered Australian missionary Jacqueline Hamill. Duterte made the same threat to Australia whose ambassador also condemned the mayor’s comments.

Upon learning of Duterte’s threat, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Trump thanked Duterte for making his job as president much easier.

Trump has consistently said in his campaign that as president he will deport all undocumented immigrants living in the U.S.

The real estate mogul said he will not only deport TNTs (the Filipino term for undocumented immigrants), but also revoke the naturalization papers of Filipino Americans.

Trump, however, said that he is open to U.S.-based Filipinos to apply for political asylym if they can prove that going back to the Philippines will subject them to persecution under a Duterte administration.

Latest census figures show that there are about 4 Million Filipinos now living in the United States.
